MAY 8, 2021 BEST OF THE VALLEY 3


Welcome to the Valley’s

ORIGINAL readers’ choice awards contest!

IT’S TIME TO PICK THE TOP 5! You’ve chosen the nominees in this year’s contest, totaling more than 1,450 entries in 139 categories.

Now it’s time to vote for your favorites through Saturday, May 15, at DNROnline.com/Best to determine the Top 5 in each category. You may vote once a day in any or all categories.

nominees down to the top five. From that shorter list, readers will pick a winner and two finalists in a final voting round in June.

• DAILY VOTING With online balloting, you can vote once per category per day, so you can really show your support for your favorites.

So, we took steps this year to increase transparency in our rules and decisions about which nominees are eligible for which categories. Just go to DNRonline.com/best for contest rules. Have questions? Email BOV@DNROnline.com.

• A NEW ROUND OF VOTING When a category has a big field of nominees, it’s possible to “win” with only a very small percent of total votes. So, just like in an election where there is a primary, we are adding a first round of voting for readers to narrow
